Help advice on dj mix software

Hi please help I need advice on 2 matters relating to the same topic.

I've just started DJ'ing & rather than CD's have been convinced to use MP3 etc from my laptop at gigs.

I require some decent reliable software that lets me mix the start & end of tracks but with a few other basic functions including:
- List & save playlists.
- Able to auto stop a song at it's end rather than mix into the next mid playlist.
-Have a search track facility for requests.
- Most importantly able to play from my Itunes audio library which are Mp4 format.

Alternatively I require software to convert my huge Itunes Library to Mp3 but retain the tag info i.e. Artist Name , Song Title, Genre etc.

Any ideas

I went on your link provided but reading the specs of their products they don't appear to support Itumes MP4 format audio? Other than that it has all I need.

Thanks for this, you'll have to explain as I'm not a PC expert like yourself...

- What's an MP4 out?
- What is DRM music?
- How exactly do I use the 247 name you showed me?

Sorry for being a bit thick.... :-)

I wouldn't convert from one lossy format to another - they will sound really rubbish on big speakers at high volume. All the DJs I know use CDs and CD decks.
